On the 133rd episode of Piecing It Together, JC from Screen Fix Podcast joins me to talk about the latest Judd Apatow film, The King Of Staten Island, starring (and partially based on the life of) Pete Davidson, out now on VOD. A slight growth in the stoner, slacker man-child Apatow collection, it was a little tough to come up with puzzle pieces, but we had a great conversation anyway. Puzzle pieces include Say Anything, Knocked Up and Garden State.
On the 35th episode of Piecing It Together, returning co-host Kris Krainock and I discuss a24’s mid90s, the directorial debut from Jonah Hill. mid90s is a slice of life… 1990’s skateboarder life to be precise. With virtually no known actors except Lucas Hedges, it shows the life of a young kid as he tries to make friends with a bunch of skaters. The authenticity on screen is somewhat of a nostalgia overload, but Jonah Hill does an amazing job of balancing it into a touching, funny film. Puzzle pieces include Kids, Clerks, Barry Lyndon and the NES Classic.
